Jewellery for Nature Lovers

You only have to take a walk in the great outdoors at this time of year to see how beautiful nature can be. The colours are vibrant, the shapes are delightful and the wildlife is out in force. With all this stunning scenery around us, it’s easy to see why fashion has always taken inspiration from nature.
 
Some of the very earliest jewellery recovered by archeologists has been nature themed. Serpents and snakes were hugely popular in Ancient Egypt, as were scarab beetles and winged birds. The endurance of these designs is incredible and many are still popular 5,000 years later. Although, if we’re honest we can’t say we’ve ever worn a beetle brooch!
One of the reasons we love nature themed jewellery is that it is so versatile. It can be cute, it can be cool, it can be classic… and it can be quirky. (On that note, have you heard that one of our favourite whimsical style icons Zooey Deschanel has named her new daughter Elsie Otter?! Just think of the complementary jewellery options…)
If you’d like to bring nature-inspired pieces into your look, here are a few tips to make sure they work for you:

For a classic look

Keep the rest of your outfit simple and let your jewellery make a statement. This squirrel necklace will say everything you need it to!

For a laid-back look

Avoid theming your outfits around your jewellery. Animal inspired earrings with animal print clothing can quickly feel twee. Simple pieces such as these silver leaf studs will add texture to your look in a way that looks effortless. 

For a subtle look

Choose nature inspired jewellery in monochromatic tones of gold and silver. This Reeves & Reeves Hare Necklace would be a great choice. Remember: it doesn’t have to be visible from the other side of the room to make an impact.

For a quirky look

Wear bright jewellery that contrasts with the colour of the rest of your outfit. A yellow daisy pendant on a red blouse would certainly get attention!
